Customer Reviews

A return visit to this lovely cottage and despite the wet and windy weather had a lovely time revisiting our favourite places. Many thanks for the gift of biscuits, wine and milk and the lovely vase of flowers.

Harris family, Cannock

We had a fantastic time here. Our favourite spot was the 'Devil's Kitchen', in the Ogwen Valley, which was breathtakingly beautiful..The location of the cottage is very convenient for many good places. We've had fun in this lovely cottage - thanks!

Evans family, Harrow

A beautifully welcoming cottage which we have thoroughly enjoyed. A great base from which we embarked on a week of adventures!! Llyn Idwal walk, part of the Miners' Track to Snowdon, then the push to the summit. Tryfan conquered! We then embarked on a white-water rafting experience at the National Centre, fantastic fun, lots of screams and very wet!! We really needed the comfortable beds, hot showers and lovely living accommodation. We will be back!

Kippen family, Woodbridge.

Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage with all needs catered for. We walked up Snowdon in blazing sunshine - by Wednesday it was thick snow and woolly hats! We feel we've seen the landscape in all seasons in just one week.

Norman family, Isle of Wight

Brilliant cottage, just great for a mountaineering week. Four superb mountain days - Snowdon Horseshoe, Moel Siabod, Cadair Idris and one low-level walk.

Shenton family, Isle of Wight

What an amazing location for a holiday - castles, great walks and a train up Snowdon. Beaumaris is especially good for young children. We all walked into Llanberis this morning along the lake after excellent pancakes and coffee at Caffi Caban.

Toulmin family, London

What a wonderful cottage! there is everything you need in it. It was spotless, comfy and a pleasure to stay in. Would love to return! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Russon family, Wolverhampton

Thank you for the lovely comfy cottage and very cosy fire. There were three of us here from Australia and we managed to get some snow on our last day, which was great for us. We would recommend this place to anyone - magic!
